All RR estimates and 95% CIs are based on the matched evaluation and are adjusted for highest professional degree and self-reported height 1 year before interview.

Based on all items containing milk fat (including modified items by categorical shift: cheese in bread and meals, yoghurt, milk, low-fat milk and items of the diet 1 year before interview: butter, soft cheese, and cacao).

RR estimates and 95% CIs are based on the matched evaluation and are adjusted for highest professional degree, self-reported height 1 year before interview, a history of familial testicular cancer, and a history of cryptorchidism.

§

Based on all items of the maternal questionnaire containing milk fat (milk, low-fat milk, cacao, yoghurt, cheese, soft cheese).
